, rupert murdoch was a local australian press barren. he had inheritted his father's newspaper, expanded it within his father's empire but he was not known on the world stage. he battled for the british establishment to get his hands on it a pretty scandal lass, titilating scandal sheet in london. 42 years later he has closed it this week after a very intense, very chaotic week of revelation which is have tipped a long-running scandal about what he's described as wrong doings of this newspaper into a very different level. what's happened this week is that the long investigation into something called phone hacking which is a process where by journalists of their private investigators they were paying on this newspaper have been accessing the voice mail messages of people. now this started off with suspicious voice mails being deleted from the mobile phones of the royal princes, william and harry. this was more than five years ago. then a number of celebrities in the u.k. and around the world had their phones hacked. people like jude law and others. and a number of politicians including me
murdoch, his son james, and reb ekah brooks. bbc newsnight tell us tell they are covering the story. >> tonight, robert mcdowell on the fcc's action to begin cracking down on unauthorized service charges to cell phone bills. that is tonight on "de communicators -- "the communicators." the nuclear regulatory agency officially make recommendations within 90 days. the industry would have five years for any new regulations to come from the process. >> we are honored to be here today, speaking at this venerable institution. the national press club is a venue like no other. it has been at the center of washington news. as i was preparing for this, in my staff did a little investigation, they understood the historic emblem was that of an owl. i will not claim wisdom and i will let you judge my awareness, but i can relate to the long nights spent sleepless on the job. as chairman of the new tillage -- the nuclear regulatory commission, one of the best aspects of my job is having the opportunity to lead a staff of nearly 4000 talented public servants. we hear from all sides and all perspecti
. >> one final section. you touched earlier, mr. james murdoch, you touched generally on the general culture of phone harking and illegal -- hacking and illegal practices that have happened in this country. pierce morgan who is not a celebrity anchor at cnn, you do not appear to have asked him any questions about phone hacking. he said, and i quote, that little trick that allows anyone to call messages. he opened that using that little trick enabled him to win "scoop of the year" on a story about americans. that was a story in the "daily mirror" about phone hacking. yesterday there was someone posting about their practices at the "daily mirror." what they said to parliament is that "the daily mail" has never run a story on phone hacking in anyway. 50 journalists obtained information by the founder who has used, some, shall we say, unorthodox methods. is it not the truth of the matter that the news of the world is entitled to go out there reestablish the section of phone hacking because that was part of the general culture of corruption in the british tabloid press, and they didn't ki
story is what is happening with rupert murdoch and his businesses. here's this picture looking at the u.k. hacking scandal and what's happening right now. he will appear before a panel of u.k. lawmakers on tuesday after the phone hacking scandal. today on c-span3 we will bring you the british house of commons at 9:30 morning where rupert murdoch will test suppor -- will testify before a committee. let's go to the phones again, phoenix, arizona, independent mind. caller: i was calling about the balanced budget amendment. we cannot have that. if you amend the constitution, that means the supreme court eventually if gets to decide what that constitutional amendment means. that means every time congress disagrees, which is constantly, if somebody will file an action, take it to federal court, the judge will make a decision, and eventually it will be determined by the supreme court of the u.s. and i don't want lawyers making that decision. that's not what our constitution intended. host: let's look at an e-mail comment. and from cincinnati ohio -- and jim weighs in on twitter -- ken joins us
and these things don't happen again. with hindsight and relationships with murdochs, you want to have a relationship with journalists, editors, broadcasters and propertyors and you do that to have a mission to try and improve our country. you get out and do it and that is what i have done in the last five years. the regret that i have and the problem that we are correctly identifying is because leading politicians feel passionate about wanting to get that across not just with rupert but with every broadcasting organization, we have to ask are they behaving properly. that is the problem. it's not the nature of the interaction. it's the failure to actually ask the fundamental questions about media regulation, media practices and the rest of it and that just isn't relationships with news international but applies to everybody. and i think that's where we need -- and we have an opportunity, a moment toward politicians and media and journalist groups that there are going to be inquiries and going to be difficult, going to come come out with a new way of regulating the press that ensures pr
and comments on "washington journal." after that," newsmakers." then rupert murdoch's testimony before a parliament committee. >> what would that have been like to have met these people when you did not know the ending? >>eric larsen follows adolf hitler and the third reich. >> i started looking for characters of whose -- through whose eyes i could tell that story. that's when i stumbled upon william e. dodd. >> this story of politics and intrigue in nazi germany tonight on "q &a." ." >> this morning, a political roundtable. roundtable.
minute. mr. blumenauer: amyths the spreading scandal of the murdoch news corporation, it's clear it wasn't as they first claim, just a rogue reporter or two. there's a pattern of abuse, some illegal that was widely practiced and known, perhaps encouraged, certainly tolerated. it is important for the f.b.i., the s.e.c., hopefully congress itself to investigate the news corp, fox, "wall street journal" and not just about the concerns of potential spying on 9/11 victims which would be reprehensible if true. but possible violations of the foreign corrupt practices act which makes it illegal for american citizens to bribe foreign officials. some claim we ought to go easy on the murdoch news corporation so we don't appear partisan, but just giving money to the republican party, hiring republican presidential candidates, slamming the news and commentary should not give them a pass for questionable, perhaps illegal, conduct. we must ensure that americans are not abused by the news corp management practices or employees. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise
for rupert murdoch. i left cambridge and was in london at dreaming up one day becoming a blogger in america. [applause] contrary to walter's new book -- it says that right now walther is the only man in washington who is making [unintelligible] [applause] i also loved his biography on henry kissinger, partly because he was the first man to reassure me when i moved to new york that having an accent was not a problem. [laughter] he said to me you can never underestimate the complete advantages of utter in copper and stability. -- and copper instability. -- incomprehensibility. i was in london when the phone hacking scandal started. it is amazing to see two things. first of all, how old fashioned an incredibly irrelevant the debate between old media and new media is. 168 years on paper. an incredible institution in the british press that was acting in ways that would have been utterly disgusting coming from anywhere in the immediate universe. it is new media that played a huge part in bringing the news of the world down so fast part -- . -- news of the world down so fast. it is amazing what is
i think affects us here. we have rupert murdoch controls news of but -- "news of the world," and he controls "wall street journal." it seems to me since he took over "wall street journal," it has kind of slanted, not doing the reporting that it used to do. the other issue i wanted to bring up and i'm wondering if down the road you can do the programming on it, i read that eric cantor in his investment portfolio is betting against the dollar. i don't understand, if you could do research and have somebody do a program about that. if the second highest ranking person in the house, how could you be betting against the dollar in your investment portfolio? i know his wife works for bank of america. but this is crazy. if you guys can look into that and maybe do a program -- and on the 14th amendment, and maybe invite someone to explain to us how the 14th amendment and the 11th amendment, so we can -- mostly i get my information from c-span and if you guys could go back to giving us information so we can make our own decisions i would really appreciate it. host: our producers are looking at

was that social media is about accountability. the reason why ultimately group -- rupert murdoch will withdraw his bid for british sky broadcasting, is because the last three leaders of major parties urged him to do so. they did not urge him to do so because they suddenly had an epiphany about news corp.. it was because of the pressure they are getting from social media and citizens everywhere. all that happened so fast. everything is accelerated in the brave new world of media. this is really why i am so excited about the fact that social media, new media is all about engagement. patch is really about hyper local. we are now in 100 the towns across america -- 150 towns in america. we launched a citizen journalism initiative last week. within 48 hours we had 600 people signed up to be citizen journalists, bringing the news to all of you, bringing the local voices into the national dialogue, which is one of the things we are so excited about, being able to have a total of over 1300 professional journalist working with us, while at the same time being a platform that provides a distribution channel
